Information: Tim was brought up with a keen interest in plants. His first patch was a raised rock garden as a teenager. He spent his early adulthood in academia working on plant hormones. Six months of this were spent in Tasmania where he took the opportunity to explore the wilds. Then he started a nursery at Copton Ash. He grew a wide range of plants including those from the Southern Hemisphere, but became known for his interest in Umbellifers. He wrote a booklet on them for the HPS. Since reopening the nursery he has focussed on Alpines, perennials for drier gardens and woodland plants.
